I have more cartridges than I every thought I would, however I've seen scrapbookers with many more! I only have a baby Bug, but it does everything I need & I can take it with me to crops. It fits perfect in my Crop in Style XXL bag. I've had a Gypsy now for a while & I'm not sure how I got along without it. I have to say that if you're going to have a Cricut, you need the Gypsy too. Provo Craft has now come up with the Cricut Craft Room. I've only played around with it a little, but I think the idea is for a computer version of the Gypsy, which will be nice to have a full screen. Plus I will add that there were options I thought the Gypsy should have & I think they are on CCR. I'll post more as I play around with it. Here is the link to the Cricut Craft Room. You don't have to own any of the cartridges to play around with it, but if you want to actually cut them, you must own the cartridges. Of course this is only going to encourage more cartridge purchases!!!
Special occasions call for special cards. This one will fit the bill!
- One 5 1/2" x 12" piece of Cardstock

Step 1Place 5 ½” x 12" piece of cardstock horizontally in your Scor-Pal.
Score at 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”.
Step 2Turn cardstock a ¼ turn.
Along the long edge, measure in 1 ½” .
Make a slit with a craft knife between the score marks at 2” and 10”. Repeat on the other long side.

Step 4Using card base as a template, trace the section with the T-shaped fold onto patterned paper.
Cut two of this shape.
Step 5Trim 1/16” from all sides of patterned paper.

Cut 1 piece of patterned paper 2 3/8” x 3 7/8”.
Dry fit all of the pieces, then adhere to card base.
